Canon 300D;  Canon 500mm f4 IS
Location: Ooty, Tamil Nadu

Shoot details
This photograph was shot in Ooty in The Nilgiris in Tamilnadu when birding with Clement in early 2007. He expertly tracked down the tiny bird by just its call, and we spent several hours behind it before it showed up in open for some photos!

Species details
This 13cm flycatcher is endemic to the 'Shola' forests of the Western Ghats in southern India. Not easily observed, the species is energetic and wary. The male is pictured here, females being duller.
